Today, we have the wonderful Eliza Gayle. I first read Eliza’s stuff when I read her Purgatory series. She is the first author that introduced me to Shibari and I blame her for my obsession 😀 I am giving away All Romance copies of the first THREE in the Purgatory series with this post. Enter and hope you win… you won’t be sorry 😀

Thank you for having me at Scorching Book Reviews blog today. I’ve been writing BDSM romance and erotica for quite a while now but early on I began to share my love for bondage through many of the stories I have written.

However, after spending some time watching two men tie up women in intricate designs for a rope swing in a local club I became even more enamored with rope bondage and began doing a lot of research to write a story inspired by those two men.

Specifically I studied Shibari which is a form of japanese bondage that I find both equally restrictive and breathtakingly gorgeous. It’s typically tight and is quite a bit more involved than the simple rope skills I learned in the Marines. You can see some samples here and here. This type of decorative bondage takes a while to complete and is great for a long well thought out scene. And because rope comes in every color you can imagine it truly can become a feast for the eyes.

Of course there is more than just the visual. Many a sub thrives under the sensation of restriction. That helpless feeling in the face of the ultimate trust gives me goosebumps every time I think of it. And beyond that the ropes can be tied or adjusted strategically for stimulation allowing for just enough to keep a sub on the edge. (another very good place to be)

For a taste of what I mean, here is an excerpt from the first book in my Purgatory series, Roped.

NSFW Excerpt: 

Quinn unfurled the rope and draped it over Katie’s shoulders. The dark burgundy color against her fair skin stood out stark and beautiful. They were right about it being a good color for her.

Her favorite dress was in that exact shade. In fact, last month she’d worn that sexy outfit to the club and Leo had complimented her on it.

Leo stood from the couch and paced toward her, stopping mere inches from her nude body. His fingers grabbed the edges of the rope and pulled her forward against him as he slanted his mouth across hers. His tongue plunged through her lips, taking her with an unexpected hunger. Her own body responded as she rubbed against him, spreading her legs just enough for the rough fabric of his pants to scrape against her clit. She moaned into his mouth as he pulled the rope tighter, forcing it to dig into the skin on the back of her neck.

Hands grasped at the globes of her ass, spreading them, and a finger ran along the crack. She’d never had two men touching her at the same time, and their attention was a heady sensation as they pinched, pulled, and prodded her sensitive spots. Every movement came with a spark of both pain and pleasure as they experimented with her body.

When Leo pulled from her lips she wanted to beg and plead for more, but she instinctively knew better. Two experienced Dominants working her body were only going to give her what they wanted and nothing more. She had to be patient. He tied a knot into the rope at her throat, which rested in the hollow like a necklace. Leo continued to make a series of knots at short intervals all the way to the apex between her thighs.

Quinn’s hands moved across her back and under her arms to her front. When he wrapped a separate section of rope between the knots that Leo had tied and pulled them tight around her back, it created a diamond pattern on her chest. He tied off the rope and repeated the process with each new section until she had a series of diamonds trailing down her torso straight to her pussy. Occasionally the last knot rubbed against her clit, causing her to lose her breath and focus every damn time.

With a wicked smile Leo bent down to pull the rope between her legs. She’d seen this pattern before and she knew they would attach the rope work in the front to what Quinn had done in the back and, oh dear God, that rope would nestle between her folds and run up her ass to her back.
